A dark ambient collection recorded in August 2006. All tracks form a continuous mix.

Artist Felix Zakar created Voices in the Furnace - a unique set of images inspired by Mary Shelley's classic novel Frankenstein. Over 90 original artworks tell a non-linear interpretation of the gothic horror story. These images inspired a collection of pieces by the musical experimenters, Drugpigs. The result is Ipsaris - a rich and darkly evocative sound collage, mixing avant-garde with ambient electronica.
